Fortnite: Epic Games detail compensation for miscommunication over Xbox One S bundle

Fortnite: Epic Games detail compensation for miscommunication over Xbox One S bundle

Following outrage from the community regarding the Xbox One S Fortnite bundle, Epic Games have announced compensation that affected players can look forward to.

The special Xbox One S Fortnite bundle infamously contained an insert in it that provided players with a code to unlock the ‘full game,’ leading many to believe this referred to the Save the World game mode of Fortnite that is not free-to-play.

After hearing the outcry from the community over the miscommunication, Epic Games has issued a response on the matter and detailed exactly when players can expect compensation.

In a post to the r/FortniteBR subreddit, Epic confirmed that they had identified players who have claimed the Eon bundle and will be issuing one of two different rewards to the affected players.

For those who bought the bundle and already owned Save the World, 2,000 V-Bucks will be doled out.

On the flip side, Save the World will be granted to those players who bought the bundle and did not yet own it.

Epic also confirmed that the rewards will be given upon the release of the v7.20 update, which we expect to be released on January 15 as part of Fortnite’s usual update schedule.

The rewards won’t be available immediately, however, as they will take “several hours” to complete, meaning players will need to sit tight if it takes a while for them to show up.
